Ralph Waldo Emerson What to Expect on this course No experience is necessary - don't worry if you haven't picked up a pencil creatively, nor a brush, nor a stick of glue. This course is going to re-introduce the fun, the pleasure, occasional frustrations and delights that painting and drawing can bring. You will be carefully guided through these introduction to art classes. We will support and encourage you to explore, experiment and enjoy the process. On this course we want to re- kindle your imagination, develop new skills and get in touch with your inner artist.

The course will be developed over three classes.

DRAWING - looking at different uses of drawing, different materials and certain aspects of drawing such as, tone and mark making. MIXED MEDIA - this is a playful class looking at narrative, composition and new materials. COLOUR - thinking about colour is the first step towards painting. You will touch on colour theory and work with oil pastels and a type of watercolour. What happens during a class?

Each class will involve the tutor giving clear instruction and demonstrations, where necessary. You will follow the instructions using the materials provided. At various points through the class you will be put into discussion groups so you can chat about what you are doing, sharing your progress and problems. At the end of each class the tutor will go over the various topics and instructions from the day's class. There will be a chance to ask questions.

We will suggest homework between classes BUY
